DIY Spool Stool Instructions
1. Spray paint stool.
2. Cut circles from foam pad in varying sizes.
3. Cut fabric in circles that measure at least 4 inches bigger than the largest foam circle.
4. Stretch fabric over foam and staple to the stool. (If using a clock face as a reference, staple at 12, 3, 6, and 9 first. Then fill in staples.)
5. Trim any extra fabric with scissors. Glue decorative ribbon or trim onto fabric.

[$8 fabric + $2 ribbon + $4 spray paint + $10 foam mattress pad]
I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out. They ended up reminding me a bit of Luigi's toad stool. (Think old school Nintendo circa 1989.) I just hope they hold up to twenty-something 5th graders fighting over them (sweating on them, throwing them, licking them...This list could go on and on.)
